Yellowstone Bison Goes After Kids
September 9, 2012
All we can say about this: The adults there ought to be beaten with large sticks.
That bison was even giving all the signs of being agitated! Gah!
From the West Yellowstone Chamber of Commerce:
This video is one that makes us angry, expecially at the irresponsible person behind the camera urging the children “to go ahead and touch him.” This group has no idea how incredibly lucky they were that no one was injured or killed.
Officials in Yellowstone National Park say a Massachusetts man was gored by a bull bison that threw him 10 feet in the air and then pinned him to the ground.
The man, who is in his mid-50s, suffered a broken collarbone, shoulder blade, several ribs and a groin injury in Saturday’s encounter near the Norris campground.
That was an adult man. That gnarly old bison would have smashed those kids like gourds.
